A new reality show starring the family of the late Whitney Houston is coming to Lifetime.
The network announced Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbie Kristina, and mom Cissy will be featured in the new reality series. Along with Whitney's daughter and mother, "The Bodyguard" star's sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston, Pat's daughter Rayah and Whitney's brother Gary will be featured on the tentatively titled, "The Houston Family Chronicles." According to Lifetime, the series will feature the Houston family "as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her Mother."
Whitney passed away in February 2012. The official cause of death was"cardiac event" and accidental drowning.
"The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family,” Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming at Lifetime Networks, said in a statement. “In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow."
Dionne Warwick and CeCe Winans will also appear in the series.
“I have been working with Simmons Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family," Pat Houston said in a statement. "The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward."
Lifetime has ordered 10 hour-long episodes of "The Houston Family Chronicles" to premiere sometime in 2012.
